I think we've got a gusher over here...

I am so excited for these nails! I'm going to a show on Friday night to see a band called New Years Day, if you haven't heard of them do your ears a favor and CLICK HERE to listen to some of their music on Myspace. I've been pondering ideas of how I wanted to do my nails for weeks (literally), first I was thinking maybe a sunrise kinda thing since they have a song called Sunrise Sunset and another one called Temecula Sunrise...then I wanted to do something Halloween-ish. I kept going back and forth between those ideas. I decided tonight that I was going to go the Halloween route and wanted to try bleeding cuticles and scary bats. Turned out interesting, not a good way lol. I took all my polish off and started over, I knew I wanted to keep with the blood idea and remembered a post I saw over at The Daily Nail a while back so I decided to recreate it.

BLOOD SPLATTER!! I think this might be the easiest, most fun manicure I have ever done. I started with a base of American Apparel- Cotton then I used a straw I dipped in American Apparel- Downtown LA and blew the red polish onto my nail to look like blood splatter. I might need to resurrect this mani for when the new season of Dexter starts!


  1. That looks great! I would have never thought to use a straw, great idea!

  2. love it !!
    i have a giveaway in my blog come on see if you want !!

  3. Perfect! I love the straw technique! I did a splatter manicure on my blog but I had to have someone else flick the colors onto my nails. Now I can do it myself. I think we should get lots of nail bloggers to do Dexter manicures for the season premiere. HBO loves weird marketing promotions!

  4. when i saw this i immediately thought DEXTER then i kept reading!
    great idea, i think i will have to do them for when dexter starts too!!!

  5. Okay, I realize I am months late here, but I'm having a lazy night in and can't stop reading your blog!

    This look is awesome. I love it. I can't wait to try it!
